There has been a hotel on this site since the 1930's, but there is nothing out of date here now! The outside grounds are modernized and redone in stone and wood. The room furnishings are high quality and first-rate. It has decorations from the 1950's including gas pumps, a car, a rotary phone I haven't seen in years. The breakfast... More

Only have double beds but the beds are comfy. Nice small hotel and good location to the downtown area where there are tons of places to eat. Will definitely stay again. The breakfast selection was nice, had hot and cold items.

We had stayed at this motel some years ago and were not real satisfied at that time. But because it was close to Missouri State University, we chose it. We were amazed at the improvements and the service! What a wonderful change!!! The room was beautiful, there were towels for all. All the amenities were there. A very good breakfast... More

Was looking forward to staying here after seeing so many nice reviews. Even though I was forewarned about the small size of the rooms, it was much more cramped than I imagined. We had 2 adults, 2 cats, a litter box, 2 pieces of carry-on sized luggage, a small cooler, cat food container, and a cat carrier. We were in... More

Fran F: Thank you for your review. The rooms are smaller but when you add additional items necessary for travelling with pets you can run of out space fast. I know when I travel with my 2 dogs the rooms get smaller with carriers and pet food. I am please to hear that you liked the breakfast we always have... More

Our story starts about an hour and a half outside of Springfield. We shop for a hotel and find this one. After being convinced by the positive reviews we book a non smoking king room to share the bed with our 3 year old toddler. Being the wise consumers that we are, my girl friend calls about 15 minutes after... More

arizonawayfarer: On behalf of the entire staff I want to apologize for your experience at our hotel. I pulled up your reservation booked through Priceline and see you in fact booked a non-smoking room. I will make sure that maintenance is aware of the refrigerator in that room. In regards to the argument in the parking lot, security was called... More

Always clean, always helpful staff, hotel is old- but that's what I love. It's truly vintage. We stay here once a year for our annual trip to Springfield. Rooms are nice, large bathtub, they are just a really cool overall experience.
